The Man Booker International 2018 Shortlist


Han Kang (South Korea), Deborah Smith, The White Book (Portobello Books)

László Krasznahorkai (Hungary), John Batki, Ottilie Mulzet & George Szirtes, The World Goes On (Tuskar Rock Press)

Antonio Muñoz Molina (Spain), Camilo A. Ramirez, Like a Fading Shadow (Tuskar Rock Press)

Ahmed Saadawi (Iraq), Jonathan Wright, Frankenstein in Baghdad (Oneworld)

Virginie Despentes (France), Frank Wynne, Vernon Subutex 1 (MacLehose Press)

Olga Tokarczuk (Poland), Jennifer Croft, Flights (Fitzcarraldo Editions)

On the whole I’m pleased. I’ve got The White Book and Vernon Subutex 1 on the TBR pile and a PDF copy of Flights. HOPEFULLY after the Women’s Prize Longlist, I’ll have time to tackle these books.
